Hence, the various resolutions on Peru passed by the U.S. Congress over the last year are not unusual, particularly in light of the size of the U.S. foreign aid package.
For many years, Peru was at the top of the U.S. agenda in its relations with Latin America; first, in the early 1990s as a result of the threat of Sendero and later, following the autogolpe, as a threat to regional democratization trends.

 Peru Opposition Wins Congress, Blow to Fujimori (Reuters - 16 November 2000)
As expected, moderate congressman Valentin Paniagua was elected president of Congress, constitutionally the fourth most powerful post in Peru after Fujimori and his two vice presidents, beating a government rival by a comfortable 13 vote margin.
Peru has been embroiled in political crisis since Fujimori announced two months ago that he would call elections four years early after a bribery scandal erupted over his ex-spy chief Vladimiro Montesinos, now in hiding and charged with money laundering and a host of human rights abuses.
Peru's political turmoil has been centered on Montesinos, who fled to Panama after the scandal broke in September but defied Fujimori three weeks ago by returning to Peru and sparking a major manhunt led personally by the president.
